I felt instead of Christmas itself it was a time of year to look back on the past year and anticipate the coming year. Christmas was a time to remember and cherish those memories and to make the future better. A praise to our Lord even for the hard times because it makes us more apprecitive of the good times.
Touching and full of reverence for God's wonderful gift to each of us. Now, if only folks in the USA would take that step back and remember that all the trappings (literally) of Christmas are just that-without Christ as the center-the only real reason for it all- all is vanity.
Reading this book has reminded me of the true spirit of Christmas,the focus on Jesus that we should have. It reminds us that we need to simplify Christmas. The book made a difference in my Christmas. I have given it to several friends as a gift. In telling the stories Mike Huckabee's humor is great, yet each story has a serious important message.
